Clark takes home silver with Canada at women’s worlds

At the Women’s World Hockey Championship in Brampton, Ont., Saskatoon’s Emily Clark and Team Canada came home with the silver medal after losing to the United States 6-3 in the gold medal game on Sunday.

Canada opened up the tournament with four straight wins in the round robin, including a 4-3 victory over the U.S. Then in the playoff round, they got by Sweden and Switzerland to set up a rematch with the Americans in the final. However, it was U.S. winning 6-3 to spoil Clark and Canada’s bid at a third straight gold medal. Clark finished the tournament with two assists.

Curling Canada announces format changes

Curling Canada’s national championships and Olympic trials are undergoing format changes.

The four-player Canadian Curling Trials will feature a best-of-three final. After a single round-robin draw with eight teams, the top three teams will reach the playoffs, with second place playing third in a semi-final and first place going straight to the final.

Changes are coming to the Tournament of Hearts and the Brier beginning next year as well. Curling Canada says the top two men’s and women’s teams not already qualified from this season will automatically earn a spot in next year’s Canadian championship events. The third wild-card team will be determined following the 2023-24 provincial and territorial playdowns. The modified playoff round will see the first-place team from Pool A meeting second place from Pool B, and vice versa, in the first round of the playoffs, with the winners going directly to the Page playoff 1-2 game, while the losers meet the third-place finishers in the pools. The winners of those games will advance to the Page playoff 3-4 game.

Changes and formats for the Mixed Doubles Olympic Trials are still being finalized.
